Family Room – Vacant vs. Staged

BEFORE

AFTER

Placing a seating arrangement in front of this beautiful stone fireplace helps potential buyers imagine themselves relaxing in a cozy retreat.  Random stacks of books and DVDs on the built-in bookshelves are stored behind cabinet doors and replaced with carefully arranged vases, silk plants and picture frames to make the entire space more inviting.  The once empty mantel comes to life with some appealing accessories.  Two coordinating art prints are hung vertically to add the finishing touch.

Office Before & After Staging

BEFORE

AFTER

Office space in the home has become high on a buyer’s list of criteria, so it’s important to make that space appear as functional and appealing as possible.  This office area was extremely cluttered and lacked organization.  The plaques on the wall were very personalized making it difficult for a potential buyer to  imagine it as “their space.”  Bringing in a floor lamp from a spare bedroom added much-needed light, and an outdated light fixture on the ceiling has been replaced.  A bench below the window offers a place for visitors to sit.  Moving the bookshelf next to the file cabinet helped to organize as well as extend the space making the office area appear larger.  Neutral artwork adds a nice touch without being too personal, and notice how one large wall hanging makes the space seem less cluttered than many small wall hangings.

Guest Bedroom Makeover

BEFORE

AFTER

This spare bedroom had become a dumping ground for extra linens and off-season clothes.  To convert this space to an inviting retreat for overnight guests, we replaced the mismatched bedside tables with an upholstered chair from another room and placed a round table and table lamp in the corner in place of the office-style floor lamp.  Adding sheer brown window panels helps to soften the window and give it less of a basement feel.  Coordinating bed linens, pillows and other accessories help to create a relaxing and soothing ambiance.

Family Room Staged To Sell

BEFORE

AFTER

The lower level family room in this home lacked purpose and was more of a pass-through area than a functional space.  After the pile of toys were stored in a closet and the iron & ironing board moved into the laundry room, the fireplace is defined as the focal point by positioning a sectional sofa around it.  A silk tree adds balance and frames the left side, while a large mirror and simple accessories give the mantel some pop.  To give the space a cozy feel, we added a soft blanket and several throw pillows.  Wall art helps to coordinate the overall color scheme.

Basement Office

BEFORE

AFTER

When selling a home, it’s important to show function in every area.  In this instance, an empty basement corner was converted into office space simply by adding a desk and chair, silk plants and a few accessories.
